Embedly Wall


Embedly-Wall lets you create posts as easily as you post on Facebook. It uses Embedly API to gather all the details about a link, and wordpress oembed function to retrieve the embeded media content. When you post an embed it creates a new post as a custom post type and lets you embed these posts, or narrative walls into your standard posts/pages.
